Decarbonise electricity and reform land use to plunge emissions – world’s top experts.
From melting glaciers to mounting storms, the impacts of climate change are global – but they’re not equally shared.
For the first time, an IPCC climate report has assessed evidence that weather and climate extremes are already affecting mental health — and are likely to worsen.
Water is central to adapting to climate change, but very few of the strategies put in place to respond to water hazards or ensure its availability have been evaluated.
Decades of research shows disasters are caused human vulnerabilities rather than the climate itself.
As the impacts and costs of climate change increase over time, New Zealand’s financial systems could become less stable and the government less able to support those affected.
An author of the report explains the damaging effects climate change is already having and why adaptation is essential.
The clock tracks global emissions and temperature data, and uses the most recent five-year emissions trend to estimate how much time is left until global warming reaches the 1.5 C threshold.
If the world is to adapt to sea level rise with minimal cost, we must address the uncertainty surrounding Antarctica’s melting ice sheet. This requires significant investment in scientific capacity.
Australia must start planning for the loss of entire regional communities, and internal climate refugees.
The world is acting on climate change – just not effectively.
IPCC authors go beyond the headlines to explain how 1.5℃ warming is measured – and why there’s still reason to hope, and act, if Earth exceeds that limit.
The latest report on climate science comes on the heels of heatwaves, wildfires, flooding and storms. It will help policy-makers act on plans to curb emissions or adapt to climate change.
